Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

Have I mentioned that I love this time of year? The weather in Detroit is perfect for sweatshirts and jeans, the fall colors are beginning to show, yet we still have the occasional days where it’s warm enough to wear shorts.

So, what’s going on this weekend in metro Detroit?

Weekend Roundup

1. Dally in the Alley - Art, music, and food take over the Cass Corridor alleys near the Wayne State University campus. September 12th.

2. Peter Mulvey: The Long Haul Tour - Peter, who I talked about in my house concert post, is touring on his recumbent bicycle from Grand Rapids, Michigan to Northampton, Mass. Don't miss this fabulous singer-songwriter when he stops by The Ark in Ann Arbor for a gig. September 12th.

3. Plymouth Fall Festival - This annual fest features food, crafts, cars, and entertainment. They even have a pancake breakfast and a spaghetti dinner! September 11-13.

4. Art and Apples Festival - The Art & Apples Festival is a program of Paint Creek Center for the Arts, a regional non- profit art center located in Downtown Rochester. September 11-13.

5. New Lawn's Corn Maze - This 13 acre corn maze features the Detroit Red Wings logo! They also have a pumpkin patch and other family-friendly activities. Open Friday-Sunday through November. (Hat tip to @klavaute.)

Oh yeah, and the Detroit Lions play on Sunday.

Becks, thanks so much for including my friends' corn maze!! I basically grew up on that farm and what they've done in the last few months to prep for visitors is really quite amazing. Pony rides, petting zoo, pumpkin patch, hay rides, barrel rides, corn cannons (awesome!) cart races, bonfires, delicious food and 3 corn maze levels....it's all there!

For all those who go, be sure to print the coupon from the website. $2 off! Thanks again and let me know if anyone has any questions. Hope to see everybody there!

We're really looking forward to going to the Detroit Film Theater this weekend...Alloy Orchestra plays along with the silent movies. It's always a great show!
Oh, and while you're down at the Detroit Institute of Arts for the DFT show, stop by the museum to see the new photography show covering 100 years of photo history with what sounds like some great images from the DIA's own collection.

I guess the city of Warren is having a festival this weekend too. Danny and the Juniors are playing on Saturday I think!
